LOVE AND THE WORLD'S RELIGIONS
Speaker - Brian Carwana
Speaker - Brian Carwana
Service Leader - Andrea Scapinello
We will take a journey through some of the world's oldest and most popular religions to see what they have to say about that elusive, powerful, mesmerizing force called Love.
Brian Carwana is Director of the Encounter World Religions Centre, an educational organization that has reached over 100,000 people. The centre teaches classes and organizes encounters with the people, places, practices and philosophies that make up the various traditions, especially through its Discovery Week immersion program offered every July. Brian is also close to completing a PhD in religion at the University of Toronto which he began right after the dinosaurs were wiped out.

It is not uncommon for members of the LGBTQ+ community to experience discrimination or harassment due to their sexual orientation and/or gender expression. Not only does the Rainbow Chorus provide a safe space for LGBTQ+ individuals to be themselves, it also strives to build bridges within our community.
Back by popular demand, the Rainbow Chorus is returning to UCG to share their experiences of “Barriers and Bridges” through personal stories and songs.
